Writing strategically is as important as oral advocacy. It is part of the foundation of solving and winning legal disputes, and a technique that is used daily. All lawyers, new and seasoned, need to be continuously sharpening their drafting skills. Time is always of the essence in the legal world and the better skilled you are at writing legal documents, the quicker this task will be, making you a more effective and efficient lawyer. Our stellar faculty will teach you how to write in a tactical and winning way while moving beyond the reliance on boilerplate precedents. Learn what the Court expects, what works and what doesn't, and get expert guidance on how to write and win in a practical, strategic, and focused way.
